The Penguins (6-3-3) will attempt to do something they haven't been able to do over their last three games and that's win one, tonight the New Jersey Devils (5-5-1) come to town with puck drop set for just after 7pm.
Over the course of their last three games, the Penguins have been absolutely brutal, collecting one out of a possible six points, including two back-to-back losses against the New York Islanders. The Devils, not much better, have one regulation win over their last seven games, going 1-5-1 including losing three straight. The Penguins were shutout by the Leafs on Saturday night, losing 5-0 looking horrible all-around while the Devils were also shutout, losing to the dreaded Islanders (something both teams have in common) by a score of 3-0.
The Penguins have never lost four straight home games under Mike Sullivan so something has to give.
Keith Kinkaid vs Matt Murray in goal tonight.
If you have ever seen Kinkaid's tweets it's very important that the Penguins win this game.
I personally would have started Casey DeSmith but I am also a better coach than Mike Sullivan.
Matt Murray enters tonight with a record of 1-3-0 with a 5.73GAA and .810 save percentage on home ice. Yikes.
Derick Brassard is still out with an upper-body injury. No idea when he plans to return but soon would be ideal.
Chad Ruhwedel sits tonight (WHY???) in favor of Juuso Riikola.
Evgeni Malkin looks to start a new nine game scoring streak after his streak was ended Saturday against Toronto.
Phil Kessel had a maintenance day yesterday, he's good to go tonight.
Honestly, the Penguins coast into the playoffs every year and it's hard to care about these games but man, the last three haven't even be fun to watch.
This is game 4 of 7 for the Devils on their long road trip.
They're lead by winger Kyle Palmieri who has 14 points in 11 games (9 goals, 5 assists).
Devils forward JS Dea has two more goals than Penguins forward Matt Cullen. Just sayin'.
Hockey Fights Cancer tonight - purple warmup jersey and tons of stuff.
